The educational series is free and open to all residents in Louisiana. It will be especially beneficial for CASA volunteers, social workers, educators, attorneys, judges, government officials, caregivers, and caring community members.

Building Strong Children and Families will feature a variety of topics focused on child development, protective factors, strengthening children and families, and building stronger communities. The first learning session, The Importance of the Early Years with guest speaker
